**RCUK Fellowship, Lectureship in Computational Modelling of Weather and Climate, School of
Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics, Ref. 4838. The School of Engineering,
Computer Science and Mathematics is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Computational Modelling of
Weather and Climate. The post is available from January 2007. It is initially funded by Research
Councils UK, with transition to a permanent academic post after five years. Applicants will have a PhD
in a relevant discipline and have a strong research record in computational modelling of weather,
climate, or geophysical flows, either in developing novel techniques, or in novel applications of such
techniques. Topics might include (but are not restricted to) adaptive or multi-scale techniques, methods
designed to respect important physical properties such as conservation or balance, techniques for
parallel computation, or probabilistic methods for ensemble predictions and simulations. The successful
applicant will join a vibrant research environment in the Mathematics Research Institute, which includes
the Centre for Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics. Applied Mathematics at Exeter was
rated 5 in RAE2001. The School has strong research links with the Met Office through the joint funding
of three Chairs, in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Climate System Dynamics, and Statistical Analysis of
Weather and Climate. The RCUK Academic Fellowship Scheme is intended to help researchers move
on to permanent academic positions. As such applicants to this post must currently be contract
researchers who are employed on a temporary or fixed term contract. Further details of the RCUK
Academic Fellowship Scheme can be found at WWW.RCUK.AC.UK/ACFELLOW /INFO.ASP. Salary will be circa
£28,000pa. Application packs are available from WWW.EXETER.AC.UK/JOBS; e-mail; or
